Scots biomass specialist unveils exclusive Electratherm partnership at All-Energy

Posted: 2nd May 2018

A leading Scottish name in the supply of renewable heat will be showcasing its exclusive partnership with one of the world’s top producers of fuel-free, emission-free electricity at this week’s All-Energy event in Glasgow.

Uphall-based Scot Heat & Power is the only Scottish company to offer ElectraTherm’s innovative Power+ Generator that utilises waste heat for efficient clean energy production.

Scot Heat & Power believes that its cost-effective offering will attract strong interest at the annual Scottish Event Campus (SEC) gathering, taking place across 2 and 3 May.

It is also certain that its ElectraTherm relationship will inspire fresh innovation going forward, in turn delivering greater value to the UK market.

The All-Energy Exhibition and Conference – the UK’s leading renewable energy and low carbon innovation event – is in its 17th year, and Scot Heat & Power is proud to be taking part for a second time.

A global leader in distributed, waste heat to power generation, Bitzer-owned ElectraTherm – already has selected installations in the UK, but the deal with Scot Heat & Power marks its first and only Scottish presence. In recent years alone, ElectraTherm has announced new installations in Germany, Italy, Romania and Japan.

Licensed only to Scot Heat & Power north of the border, the Power+ Generator utilises waste heat on applications such as internal combustion engines, biomass boilers, flare gas, geothermal/co-produced fluids, and more.

The flexible generator can be used with standard biomass hot water boilers, utilising low temperature and low pressure Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) and its proprietary technologies for major efficiencies.

The Power+ can also produce clean electricity from low grade waste heat, and is capable of reaching outputs of up to 110kWe power generation.

The easily installed technology is capable of benefitting waste heat or process heat users, representing a strong competitive advantage for commercial sites.

Globally, the Power+ fleet exceeds 50 machines in operation and has surpassed 75 years of runtime.


Scot Heat & Power’s Managing Director, Malcolm Snowie said: “We are pleased to be exhibiting once again at All-Energy, and to be unveiling some of the most innovative technological developments in our field with over 7,000 developers, researchers and buyers expected to be attending over the event’s two days.

“We are particularly proud to be partnering with ElectraTherm, bringing its leading power generation capabilities exclusively to Scotland.

“The waste heat to power market offers incredible potential. We believe that there is so much more to come and that we now have the opportunity to be at the forefront of that.

“The Power+ fleet has enjoyed considerable global success, and we are certain that can be replicated here for better efficiency and cost savings for commercial users through low maintenance, clean electricity.

“Our presence once more at Finnieston demonstrates the focus that we place on clean power generation where we see a strong avenue of growth for the business.

“We are looking forward to making a strong contribution to the show, emphasising our significantly expanded offering, with the aim of driving further value and efficiency in the marketplace.

“It’s an exciting time for us to talk about the considerable environmentally sustainable advances that we’ve been able to bring to Scotland as we look to expand our interests further.”

Scot Heat & Power’s Head of Sales and Business Development Darren Bolton will be speaking at All-Energy on the topic of ‘Biomass Energy, Increased Efficiency, and Renewable Heat all in one’ on 2 May from around 11am.

The company aims to help users take advantage of the financial and environmental benefits of renewable heat and power produced from biomass.

It is one of the few companies in Scotland that designs, installs, and commissions biomass boilers from 60kW to several megawatts, providing on-going maintenance and a fuel delivery service.

Scot Heat & Power currently supplies fuel and operates large boilers on behalf of clients including Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh, St Andrews University, Aboyne Academy in Aberdeen, The State Hospital, Carstairs, and The Gleneagles Hotel.

It chiefly provides heating solutions to large commercial industry across food and drink, waste management, housing associations, public sector hospitals, prisons, schools, universities, hotels and leisure facilities, and more.
